Cute quiet place with great service and decent food. My only quip was that all if the meat dishes (except for lamb tagine) were overcooked/dry.

Ate at Cedars of Lebanon on a blister Sunday evening and had the restaurant too ourselves. Hummus is very good. We had the Lamb kebabs and Lamb couscous, both of which were very good.

We go here every once in a while because my husband loves Lebanese food. We recommend it! It’s nice to get out of the usual grind and have something different.

We were really looking forward to eating here, but in the end it was a let down. We were sat promptly and our order was taken. We also got water and our hummus app, but then it went down hill.

The hummus was nice and creamy, but the pita bread was cold and store bought. I prefer it hotter and a little toasted.

The chicken schwarma was not authentic. Normally schwarma is slices of chicken stacked on a bar and slow-roasted and then the meat is shaved off. This was just a boneless chicken breast cooked over fire and then sliced. It was luke warm and the flavor was lacking. The basmati rice was dry, and the vegetables were just ok.

The service was the worst part. While the staff was ultra friendly, it took forever to get 2 beers. Like, we were almost done with dinner before we got our dinners.

This is my second time visiting the restaurant. This time, without the belly dancers. The environment is a little more quiet and good for conversation. Food is always good. Service is good too.

Visiting, and we wanted something different, but with vegetarian options. The staff and owner were exceedingly gracious. Polite and efficient. The dishes were very tasty and properly portioned. The belly-dancing was a pleasant surprise. If we lived in SC, we would come back.

We celebrated my Dad's birthday in the tent room and had a great time. We had 9 in our party and they were very accommodating. I marked live music even though there wasn't live music; however, there was a belly dancer and Leyla was amazing. She had us out of our seats dancing with her and she was very entertaining. The food was excellent. They were out of tiramisu so I had there rice pudding and I'm was pleasantly surprised, as was everyone else in my group who had to help me eat my dessert!

The food is authentic Lebanese cuisine with a wonderful blend of flavors. The lamb tangine was simmered to perfection in a dark curry sauce. The other dish we had was the lamb shank and the meat was simmered in an orange curry sauce. Excellent meal! I would return again and again if I lived there. The owner spent time talking with us about the significance of the restaurant - a real personal touch.

Service was good and food was great. Best hummus ever! The chicken kababs were delicious - wonderful spices. My husband had a vegetarian option with lentils and rice, hummus, and cucumber chips. Very tasty. We weren't familiar with Lebanese white wine, but it was quite tasty and good value.

I love the food here. The service is a little hit and miss. Its by no means very expensive but I would imagine the service being slightly more sophisticated. Our bill was about 100 so the tip was roughly 20 dollars. I would have preferred more attentive service considering the extended time we had to wait for our meal.

Fun place with excellent food. Both the chicken shish kabob and chicken shwarma were delectable chicken dishes. The shish kabob chicken had a lemon flavor to it. Fun to have a little show of bellydancers. Something different. Good for family, friends or a date.

This restaurant has Lebanese, Morrocan, and Armenian quinine. I liked dinner so much that I brought a small group back for lunch. The lunch buffet was varied, wonderfully flavorful, and quite inexpensive. At both lunch and dinner I was warmly welcomed, almost like I was entering someone's home as a treasured guest. The women working there were very generous in explaining all of the dishes. On return trips to Salt Lake, this will be my first choice of restaurants.

I called early the day of my reservations and requested a special Lebanese dish that was not on the menu and the owner said she would make it especially for me . The food was delicious and how can you beat the treatment we received? We love it and the price was very reasonable.

Seven of us gathered for an evening meal. While we expected Lebanese food, we were surprised to find Moroccan food, too. All seven us went Moroccan. The lamb pastilla and lamb tangine were both excellent. So was the Malbec from Argentina. I highly recommend it to those looking for a lovely dinner with friends or someone special.
